If active Directory is not in administrative tools then it is likely that the machine is not configrued as a domain controller. You will need to add this as a role through server manager. Once configured as a domain controller Active Directory will appear under admin tools

DHCP installation problem


First of all, read this M$ article on setting up DHCP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/139904

Secondly, check the following:
1. You have defined a valid scope and ACTIVATED it
2. You have AUTHORISED the DCHP server in Active Directory (see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc759688(WS.10).aspx)
3. Make sure that there are enough unused IPs in the address pool
Make sure that the DHCP server service is running - and check the EVENT LOG for errors
4. Make sure that there is no other, especially unauthorized, DHCP servers (i.e. router with DHCP enabled)

Actually the best article overall to review is http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc781697(WS.10).aspx, which gives a big picture view regarding the role of DHCP autorization and what can happen in a mixed environment

Features of active directory


Active Directory think of it has management system for all network LAN PCs in your domain. You can add users to certain enterprise groups, you can disable accounts, push and pull software application better then you can in SMS domain. I use to to clone user accounts or create new user groups. Very easy to learn. To install on Server requires a domain, DNS. If you're using Windows Server 2003 and setup the server to manage active directory all the options for the installation process will appear for installation. There are a lot of info online and in books if you need more info. There are training classing offer at MS Solutions Centers.

What is the acitiv dirctry


Dear , friend


Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services,

Active directory is a directory service used to store information about the network resources across a domain and also centralize the network.


DNS stands for Domain Name Server. These are the servers that match up a fully qualified domain with the proper IP address. This is necessary because computers only understand the IP address for your domain (eg- 123.45.678.90).

Active directory


An application directory partition is represented by a domainDNS object with an instanceType attribute value of DS_INSTANCETYPE_IS_NC_HEAD combined with DS_INSTANCETYPE_NC_IS_WRITEABLE. This domainDNS object represents the application directory partition root (NC head), and is named similar to a regular domain partition, for example, "DC=dynamicdata,DC=fabrikam,DC=com", which corresponds to a DNS name of "dynamicdata.fabrikam.com". An application directory partition can, therefore, be instantiated anywhere a domain partition can be instantiated. There is no NetBIOS name associated with an application directory partition.

It is possible to nest application directory partitions, that is, an application directory partition can have child application directory partitions. Searches with subtree scope rooted at an application directory partition head will generate continuation references to the child application directory partitions.

An application directory partition replica can only be created on a domain controller that is running on Windows Server 2003 and later and only while the Domain-Naming FSMO role is held by a Windows Server 2003 and later domain controller. In a mixed forest that has both Windows Server 2003 domain controllers and down-level domain controllers (Windows 2000 domain controllers or Windows NT 4.0 primary domain controllers), an attempt to create an application directory partition replica on a down-level domain controller will fail.

An application directory partition also has a corresponding crossRef object in the Partitions container of the configuration partition. The crossRef can be pre-created manually before creating the domainDNS object. The pre-created crossRef object must have the attribute values shown in the following table or the partition creation will fail. If the crossRef object does not exist, the Active Directory server will create one when the application directory partition is created.

Installing exchange server


You can set up a subnetwork but it has to have a separate domain controller.

Consider using Virtual Server or VMware for testing as well.

Regarding ActiveDirectory Services in Windows system


Active Directory (AD) is a technology created by Microsoft that provides a variety of network services, including: using the same database, for use primarily in Windows environments. Active Directory also allows administrators to assign policies, deploy software, and apply critical updates to an organization. Active Directory stores information and settings in a central database. Active Directory networks can vary from a small installation with a few hundred objects, to a large installation with millions of objects (though not easily [3]).
Active Directory was previewed in 1996, released first with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements were made in both Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Server 2008.
Active Directory was called NTDS (NT Directory Service) in older Microsoft documents. This name can still be seen in some AD binaries.
There is a common misconception that Active Directory provides software distribution. Software distribution is run by a separate service that uses additional proprietary schema attributes that work in conjunction with the LDAP protocol. Active Directory does not automate software distribution, but provides a mechanism by which other services can provide software distribution.
